Thank you for your support on my new adventure!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Ok, so I’m new at this, I’ll admit. Good job I enjoy a challenge I guess.
I wanted to set up a blog to hopefully create a community, that’s the goal. A place where people feel safe and free to write express how they feel without worrying about what other people might say or how they will react. If I had to pick the most valuable thing I have learnt from 6 form so far, it would be to stop caring about what other people think of you! If your looking for other’s approval constantly, your on a losing battle with yourself fin my opinion. Once you learn to love yourself and the real you, everyone else will too, trust me. But I understand it’s a lot easier said than done. In some aspects, I think I still conform to the norm on social media for how I post photos, write ideas on twitter etc. But I can happily say I’m on my way to feeling content and happy with the person I am becoming.
You can achieve anything you want you know. If you want to become the top lawyer or a popstar, then you go chase your dream. I feel as though there is so much pressure on everybody in society in today’s age, particularly young people in making choice, specifically the right choice, about the next step to take in their life, whether that be balancing bills or the next step on the career ladder. I mean, I feel like I never really tend to have time for myself anymore, I’m sure some of you may feel the same. I try to make sure I have breaks of course, but I mean should I even be starting a blog when I’ve got revision and other work related tasks to be getting on with? Young people have got so many worries put on them now, I swear. One of the big problems for me is people thinking they haven’t got a chance in doing a certain job or starting up a project like a business or youtube because there are too many other people out there who are already the best, so there’s no space for anybody else. You couldn’t be more wrong. I used to think this, and I’m sure those well known people did too, and look where they are now! Please don’t think like this, it may not be that healthy. I once started a YouTube (10 year old inspiration struck for about 2 minutes) and ended up deleting it after people laughed at me at school for it, but right now, 6 years on, I could have been a famous beauty guru?? Like I look back now and think why didn’t I ignore them and carry on? I wish I hadn’t listened to them, but perhaps that was a sign to push me more towards the writing aspect of the online world, rather than video – and so began Eleanory ❤
I wonder if your thinking where did ‘Eleanory’ come from. Maybe. So I know my name is Eleanor, that’s pretty obvious, but what about the y? My mum used to call it me all the time when I was younger, sort of like a nick name, and it all came from there. Plus, not many people have it as their domain hehe.
See you soon,
Love El xx
